Celebrate Our Veterans and Our Military Dogs

Military working dogs, like our military service men and women, are deployed worldwide. Military dogs are individually trained to help keep military bases safe, sniff out explosives, detect land mines and even deliver messages.

These service dogs also help here at home with our veterans. They have been trained to retrieve medication, to help calm anxiety attacks for those that suffer with PTSD and to provide our veterans with the emotional support needed when returning home from war.

Our four-legged friends are truly amazing animals. Thank you, to all our past and present men and women who have served or are serving and protecting our country today.

Treating Your Dog on Thanksgiving

With Thanksgiving a few sort weeks away, normally strict dog owners sometimes relax on their rules with the family when it comes to feeding the dog people food. The good news is that a little bit of certain foods on Thanksgiving shouldn't do any damage - but we recommend that you talk with your veterinarian before ever giving your dog any people food at all. For most dogs, a little bowl of turkey, sweet potato and a small taste of pumpkin is okay.
